The new way for Windwards

The Windward Islands’ seniors have often flattered to deceive and they have sometimes carried the unfortunate tag of “Cinderellas” of the regional game, but the Windward’s youth are seeking to change that mindset.

Their recent win of the WICB Under-19 One-Day Tournament in Barbados was a great step in the right direction.

Following their triumph, coach Raymond Duncan told Barbados TODAY that winning the trophy in the one-day format was a great boost for the team and the Windward Islands as a whole. He noted that even though they loved and played the game relatively well, when it came to winning they often flattered and it felt nice to actually win the tournament.

According to Duncan, his charges had a game plan and coming into the final game they knew they were behind and had to get the bonus points and thanks to their fast bowlers, they got the points which played a crucial role in their success.

The coach said he thought the tournament overall was well organized, despite the rainy weather which they encountered.
